4 quarters is better than 2

This is how a conversation went with my daughter last night:

Me: Since you helped clean, you can take some change off the table for your pickle jar.

Big R: Just any change?

Me: You can have 2 quarters.

Big R: Just 2?  4 would be better so I have a whole dollar.

Smart Girl.  Already negotiating her pay.


  1. Negotiating is a good skill. I try to remember that with my daughter.

  2. They learn so early, haha. But good for them. Indeed, 4 is a lot than 2 quarters. She just gave herself a 100% raise by just asking!
